You may be wondering why I’m writing a full length post on this blog today instead of the usual lone video. Well, to put it simply, I am tired. I am too tired to set up a camera, doll myself up for filming, and then edit the video.
I’m exhausted for a lot of reasons. All really good ones. I’ve been traveling, moving into a new trailer, meeting online friends, getting ready for that thing called college. And with the fall semester right around the corner, I’m only going to have less energy to put into my channel.
So this is the part where I tell you I’m taking a break from Youtube, right?
Well, actually, that is wrong. I did consider taking an indefinite hiatus. But there’s one problem with that idea. I don’t want to stop! I still really want to share my thoughts with you! I just need to figure out a less time and energy consuming way to do it.
The vlog style videos are more involved than most people probably realize. They take way more energy than I have to spare right now. And to be honest, I don’t particularly enjoy being in front of a camera. It's not because I’m unhappy with how I look. I like mah face! It’s that I’m when talking to a camera, I have to improvise my words a lot, and that’s something I detest doing. I like to think through every word I record, so I say everything I want to say exactly how I want to say it. Of course, there are the options of memorizing a script or getting a teleprompter, but those require more energy or money than I have right now.
So here’s my plan at the moment. It’s liable to change, but at least it’s something:
I’ll be posting my thoughts in written form here on this blog. But! No fear! I will not abandon Out of the Bubble on Youtube. I kinda love reading stuff aloud, especially my own writing. So I’ll upload recordings of me reading the blog posts. The video at the end of this post is a prime example of what I plan on making.
So if you don’t like blogs (then I don't really know why you're reading this), just stay subscribed and you can listen can to my soothing voice without a single squint of your pretty lil' eyes.
If you do like blogs, you've come to the right place. Be sure to check back every once and awhile if you don't want to miss a post.
That is all for now, my friend!
I’ll write to you soon, and stay bubbly.
